United Nations security council approves new sanctions on North Korea

United Nations security council approves new sanctions on North Korea”

The new draft moderates the toughest parts of the original proposal, with a potentially crippling oil embargo on North Korea to be introduced progressively, diplomats said.

Peruvian Foreign Minister Ricardo Luna said the move was strongly rooted in global law as reflected by new United Nations sanctions against North Korea passed on Monday. The WannaCry virus initially demanded victims pay a ransom in bitcoin, yielding more than $140,000.

Kim's apparent interest in cryptocurrencies comes amid rising prices and popularity. Trump has vowed not to allow North Korea to develop a nuclear missile capable of hitting the mainland United States.

Repeated sanctions have failed to deter North Korea's weapons program.

Haley said the USA doesn't take pleasure in strengthening sanctions and reiterated that the US does not want war. "They probably see it as a very low-priced solution to bring in hard cash". More recently this has typically taken one to three months.

Mr Trump said it was "nice" to get a 15-0 vote at the UN. Other security firms have linked the group to past high-profile cyberattacks, including the hacking of Sony Pictures in 2014. It no longer targets Kim Jong Un with sanctions.

"It should be no surprise that cryptocurencies, as an emerging asset class, are becoming a target of interest by a regime that operates in many ways like a criminal enterprise", it said.

"That's a problem between us and the United States", Kim said.

The commission could not confirm what kind of nuclear test the North conducted, he added.

Media captionHow would war with North Korea unfold?

Peru said it would "carry out all diplomatic efforts aimed at denuclearizing the North Korean peninsula". When contacted, the author of the report confirmed he wrote it in 2014, but was unaware that someone was distributing a press release about it this year.

How advanced is North Korea's nuclear programme?

There are a few things that made it through the negotiating process - for instance, a ban on textile exports from North Korea, for instance. An embargo would disrupt much of the country's Soviet-era manufacturing plants and reduce transportation options for North Koreans. "They've been creative in how they use their cyber-espionage capability".

Instead, annual crude oil supplies are capped at current levels - China is believed to supply around four million barrels a year through a pipeline, while deliveries of refined oil products such as gasoline and diesel are limited to two million barrels a year.

FireEye said if the hackers wanted to convert bitcoin or ethereum into dollars or won, they'd likely first exchange them into harder-to-trace cryptocurrencies like Monero and then into fiat currency.
